On Monday's Backchat, should we tax vacant flats? The FS is considering imposing a tax on property owners hoarding unoccupied flats, as a way to address the housing shortage. But how bad is the actual problem and how would the tax be applied and enforced? Would it apply only to developers and unsold property? Would it be fair? What's the experience elsewhere in the world? Call us on 23388266 or email email@example.com. After 9.20, Li Ka-shing.

This Saturday morning at 8.30, Anna Fenton presents the first in a five-part series, Hooked, which looks at the growing issue of addiction in Hong Kong - from alcohol and illegal drugs to social media, internet pornography, smart phones and tablets (dubbed “process addictions” because like gambling, users get an effect without actually ingesting a chemical). Hear how the internet is providing a fast forward button to addiction, find out what addiction really is, what it’s not, how to tell if you’ve got it, and what to do and where to get help if you’re ... Hooked.
